When governments around the world require all people to implement Pshycal Distancing, online shopping applications have increased by up to 300%. With this change in public spending habits, increased demand for shipping through courier or logistics services has also increased. Logistics companies have to distribute more goods than before the outbreak of COVID-19.
Several challenges must be faced by courier companies, one of which is how to continue to serve the maximum increase in shipments without violating government recommendations to limit the movement of people and goods.
The next problem is the distribution of distribution work amid increasing demand for shipments to avoid courier associations in a distribution area. To continue to obey the government’s Pshycal Distancing orders, what needs to be done is to expand the distribution area based on an increase in the number of shipments. So that the addition of the number of couriers will be divided into several distribution points.
Adding distribution points will certainly require reliable support infrastructure, one of which is a VPN connection so that couriers can securely access company applications. Setting up a new VPN connection takes 2 to 4 weeks while the current conditions are expected to be installed quickly.
